Did you really expect him to say anything different?
Honest Kobe is the best thing going in the NBA. He says exactly what is on his mind all the time. Many are too young to remember Kobe when he first got in the league, but his transformation has been similar to Floyd Mayweather. Floyd went from “Pretty Boy” to “Money Mayweather” when it got to a point he realized sticking to the script wasn’t working for him.
Kobe went from being politically correct to the Mamba and Darth Kobe.
Complete with death stares that got coaches fired. It has been a sight to behold.
Could Kobe beat LeBron 1-on-1? Kobe: "No question. As far as one-on-one, I’m the best to ever do it."
